In response to owner requests, Lagoon introduced the Lagoon 450 and Lagoon 52 SporTop versions, with a bulkhead steering station in place of the flybridge.
This version of these two models is designed specifically for owners who prefer a more conventional helm station, and they are also more suitable for sailing with a smaller crew.
The lines of both models are also sleeker, lending the SporTop versions an extra dash of elegance. Lowered rigs provide greater stability for the same sail surface area, access between the cockpit and the helm station is easier and there is also the possibility of closing off the helm station deck access for safety in bad weather.
Both the Lagoon 450 and 52 SporTop models feature new U-shaped galley layouts and continue to offer a second cockpit forward of the main salon, making best use of the expansive deck space.
The Lagoon 450 SporTop also benefits from new forward cabins with side access berths.
